hi..actually i am developing a web application wherein i need to print barcodes at client side.
i have the PCL file that would print the barcode but the problem lies in printing at the client side and that too without opening the print dialog box.
can somebody help me with this issue??
what i exactly want is that the user clicks the button and barcode is printed at the default printer (with no dialog box)..

somebody help me ..

Use an ActiveX or Plugin ScriptX and Neptune from Meadroid to give you more control for Windows versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Opera.

OK this worked for me, ASP and IE8. This will print to your default printer as soon as the page loads.

** NO PRINTER DIALOG POP-UP!!!!!!! **

<body onload="window.print();">

<OBJECT Classid=CLSID:8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2 height=0 id=WB width=0></OBJECT>   

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

DA = (document.all) ? 1 : 0

</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">

sub print() 

        OLECMDID_PRINT = 6

        OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER = 2

        OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER = 1 

        'on error resume next

 

          'IE4 object has different command structure

        if DA then

              call WB.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER,1)

 

        else

              call WB.IOleCommandTarget.Exec(OLECMDID_PRINT ,OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER,"","")

 

        end if

 

end sub

 

'This will be interpreted during loading.

'It will write out the correct webbrowser object depending

'on the browser version. To be sure it works, make sure you

'include this script block in between the body tags.

 

if DA then

        'this must be IE4 or greater

        wbvers="8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2"

else

        'this must be IE3.x

        wbvers="EAB22AC3-30C1-11CF-A7EB-0000C05BAE0B"

end if

 

document.write  ""
